Do those of you that are the most experienced players still occasionally have bad days where nothing seems to hit the targets, or suddenly your team abandons you so their nice ship will not suffer the indignity of suffering a scratch and you have to deal with 4 enemy ships making lunch out of your ship? Or you are playing a Co-op game and the green bots seemed to have all turned too fast and capsized and sunk?

We all have bad days, my friend. 

Sometimes you need to just walk away, take a break, and regroup for another day.

3 days ago 60% win rate and 100K average damage.

2 days a go... 9 straight losses.

Yesterday 33% win rate, crappy damage.

Today?  Whatever WG decides I should get.

Absolutely!

 

But if we're being honest with ourselves, we also have days where it seems we can do wrong, and even when we do screw up, the team carries us to victory anyhow.

Very much so.  One day my shells cannot miss, and the next nothing will hit.  It comes and it goes.

Hope you have a better day ahead!

Aloha,

If you look at my current stats in my signature below.....  YES, I definitely do. Some of the more unicum players may not, but I play for fun, not too worried about my stats, sometimes stuff works, sometimes stuff doesn't....  it happens as with all games.

Mahalo,

-Hapa

That's pretty bad.

That is why I quit when I lose a Co-op game... That is my barometer as to the quality of play has taken a nose dive...

I lose a CO-op game, its time for a break... :cap_cool:

Bad days?

Got GkF because last day to secure the LU without screwing around with the RB idiocy.

Played one game last night to activate the mission...

...bots all focus me and I die.

Play one game this afternoon before work...

...bots all focus me and I die.

To add insult to injury; a Smelly unexpectedly came from around an island at about 4K; never mind the bot ‘lique and GkF that also happened to be there, so I ran to avoid getting torped.

Of course it nosed in; AP, HE, if the shells didn’t mysteriously fly off in wild directions, they did no damage, so of course that OP piece of garbage ran me up to the border and torped me.

I had that happen in the T7 RM premium cruiser.  Both Bot heavy, and the bots died early.

You find your carry pants are a worn out pair of Lederhosen.

Define "bad day"

I dont think I ever had a day where my shots miss constantly, nor do I ever have a day where my team abandons me (because I play as if my team does not exist to begin with)

However, I have set a standard for myself to be so high, that a day with 60% win rate, or a day without a kraken is considered a "bad day".

I had much more fun playing this game when I was a potato tbh.

Yes, to counter this I play for fun.

Yes, I do want to improve and I use my stats to monitor my progression. The stat I completely ignore is win rate. WR is not a personal stat, it is a team stat and the teams are in constant cghange.

When I'm playing solo it can happen, there's only so much you can do yourself. In a division I will see more wins but there have been a few days that are exceptions to that.

Sigh, been a tough 2020 so far, since January have lost almost a 10th of a % off my overall win % - and with as many games as I have, that is a lot of bad days the last month and 1/2..

My Randoms WR is around 56% so I'm not uber but not a complete potato but I just can't seem to buy a win lately since getting Moskva. Normally end matches out of radar and heals while locking down a cap while my teammates die around me. Most of my ships are 50-60% WR but after 20 matches in Moskva I only have 40% WR in her. I had 6 losses in a row the other day and just gave up lol.

  So much so, that the last two times I logged on were a 3 and out, and a 2 and out.    5 games total, since Thursday, and every one of them sucked.

 RNG trolling;  lagging/freezing;  Stupid bot tricks (when the bot team  goes full stoopid);  the usual blink and it's over matches;  you name it, I got it.

  Makes me less and less willing to bother, if that's all I'm going to get.

Hmmm, a bad day. In this game there were many.

But it's a game. I just play.

I hardly have it bad in any particular mode.

I actually had the most fun when I was knee deep in the CV rework and I was in randoms just getting some.

I amassed a large fortune of just about everything.

Then I spent it all on ship waifus.

Broke again. I might take the CV out to randoms.

But I might also try the subs when they show up.

I am not sure I will be well received in a CV, but I think they prefer that than me being in a DD or a BB.

I don't do well with my squishy cruisers.

But I will think about that a bit as I have more pressing matters.

As for the game in general, I don't know.

Bad days come with MM. You have to work with what you get.

If I am lucky I will end up on a team of potatoes. That way I don't stand out as terrible.

I have used the W key so much, I am on my 3rd keyboard.

I have hit more citadels than Notser has hit islands.

I have dumped so many torps in my Benham alone that if they were all in the water right now, you could walk from St Petersburg, Russia to Galveston, Texas without getting your feet wet.

I don't hold the record for burning Midways down in a DD or hating them,  overextending, Danae wins, fires in general, torpedo hits, trips to Burger King, consumption of Dr Peppers, going in channel on two brothers, or having victories.

But total battles however, I seem to be getting that number up.

My goal for this year is to stand on top alone. Most battles.

So as all of you look up, you all will see my kilt fly up in the breeze.

Gaze with envy as the shadow falls.

LOL 😆

Everyday is a bad day in WoWS.  I don't know what they "tweaked" that made every battle totally lopsided.  Your either on a team that completely dominates or you're on the dominated team.  There hasn't been any middle ground.
